I don't know what to say? I don't know if this app works. It is weird they ask to give a good review before using it.

What a disastrous FORCED roll out of Facebook Channel by Shopify. Bring back Facebook Shop + Instagram which worked perfectly! Since trying to install Shopify's forced switch to Facebook Channel, Business Manager Accounts created in Shopify will not link properly to our company's pre-existing Facebook(and therefore Instagram) page/account/etc. Shopify support has been MIA on this. A very frustrating and disappointing fail on Shopify's part. Still waiting for someone in Shopify support to present a solution...if they can't, then Shopify should let us revert to Facebook Shop and Instagram so we can successfully tag our products on social media posts again!!! Seeing numerous other poor reviews here, it makes me wonder if Shopify fully vetted this forced app change. They should be prioritizing service to long term customers rather than trying to control our Ad Campaigns...that's a failed power grab! For any store that is still successfully using Facebook Shop + Instagram APPS, DON'T CHANGE, until you are forced to. I regret being proactive. As we all know, successful ecommerce includes being able to tag your Shopify store catalog of products in your social media posts so customers have a seamless path from seeing products on social media to purchasing via Shopify store.

Simply put, it doesn't work.
For the last 2 weeks, struggling to connect my Facebook page, but nothing presented to connect.
Many emails ping-ponged with just the same thing over and over again. Why would you shut it down the old system when the new system hasn't yet been confirmed to work? You don't even update the instruction on how facebook channel can be connected in the new system. Isn't this too immature?
The manual facebook connection was so much easier and simple, and easy to fix if problems arose. Plus, what happened to the awesome shopify support system?
No more phone support!
I used to call the support centre when having problems, which was quick, easy, instant… was awesome. Now, no calls, the chat takes much more time and fiddling than talk by nature of the system, and email back and forth seems taking forever as reply takes normally more than two days, etc. Meanwhile, I couldn't start my business after exhaustive work I pour in for so many months.
Shopify, please go forward not backward!!!

This app has stopped working: Avoid at all costs until fixed. I have just used Socialhead's version and it was a piece of cake to set up and get working, with exceptional instant tech support . I spent too many hours going round in circles and had to draw the line somewhere - Look at the feedback for this app and you'll understand.

Perdon, pero me resulta realmente un incordio, intentar agregar Instagram shop & facebook. No me resulta para nada practico. Las veces que lo he hecho se me ha vuelto a desconectar y los artículos, en caso de variacion de precios, no se actualizan.

Gracias por la revista. Definitivamente suena como una situación estresante, particularmente que intentabas varias veces de conectar tus cuentas a la aplicación. Me gustaría tomar la oportunidad de analizar los errores que estás experimentando actualmente. Te enviaré un correo pronto para preguntar por más información. - Jamilah, Shopify Support

After setting everything up... Problem 1 - Facebook blocked my Ad account.
Problem 2 - After spending a week getting our Ads account back online, I decided to give it another go. But, the following message appears on all my ads: "A problem with Facebook prevented your activity from being resumed. Try to resume in a few minutes." Tried, and tried, and it never works. Great idea, but a waste of time unfortunately. *Update - Jake, Shopify Specialist - I haven't had an email from you?

Hey there! We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. The error you mentioned may have to do with an ongoing issue we have seen in a few stores. I've sent you an email to follow up and see if we can get this fixed for you! - Jake, Shopify Support Specialist

I would love to be able to write a review, but every time I do I write something that offends the AI checking reviews. So I guess you can no longer be honest about how you feel about anything Facebook related. SHAME. I was TRYING to write about how programmers mark nursing items as non-compliant. That is such a disgrace to every woman out there.

Totally disabled my Facebook account when I tried to connnect. Absolutely no support from Facebook and so far no support from Shopify either. I have tried Shopify support and they basically wash their hands of it and say it's a FB issue. Now I can't access my FB business page because of this. I WOULD NOT download and use this app if you value continued access to your FB account.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I can definitely understand how it would not be ideal to have your Facebook account disabled and the frustration this would cause. Please know when it comes to account eligibility, Facebook has complete control over this aspect so I'd like to ensure you have the proper resources to get this resolved. I will be in touch via email soon. Look forward to hearing back. - Anna, Shopify Support

Pretty trash. I have been trying to create Ads and it impossible. I keep getting the same error message saying "A problem with Facebook prevented your activity from being published. Try to republish in a few minutes." This is super frustrating and I have been trying to do this for multiple days now.

Hello, I need to reinstall the facebook channel app, however, like others, I am also not able to reinstall it. . Page not found every time I try to reinstall. I also need to run ads asap. The app is great, if I can get it reinstalled! Thank you.
